Boycott your Bed took place on Friday 6 October 2023, generously supported by our national supporting partner Lenovo.
Events took place across the UK, in London, Leeds, Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast, where dream teams gathered together to raise vital funds and take on the challenge of sleeping out.
Over 500 sleepers have collectively raised more than £450,000, and counting this year, helping more children to have a safe and happy childhood. These vital funds will support children in need across the UK.
For over 25 years, our supporters have raised an incredible £13.5 million by giving up their bed for a night. It’s that simple – just one night without your bed to help the children who face every night without a safe place to sleep.
Boycott your Bed Live is an opportunity for corporate teams to come together – with both colleagues and peers – and fundraise in the lead up to the national event. On the night, you'll be involved in a unique experience of bonding with your team. Starting in an indoor reception and ending by spending the night sleeping outside with only a sleeping mat and bag to protect you from the elements.
The 2023 event is now complete, but please do get in touch if you would like to be involved in the 2024 event.
Catch up on Boycott your Bed Live 2023
Right now, over 4 million children live in poverty across the UK. That’s almost 30% of all children. And 350,000 more than last year. With the impact of the cost of living crisis hitting home, they’re even more vulnerable. Tonight, many will go to sleep hungry. Some won’t have a proper bed to climb into or a safe space to wake up in.
Taking part in Boycott your Bed helps to change this. Here's a few ways how:
could provide a child with a bed
could provide meals and toiletries for five weeks.
could provide an immediate grant to support four families.
Together, we can make sure children have the basics – like warm clothes, hot meals and a proper bed. We can help them recover from abuse and neglect, and put support in place for families to protect against it happening. And we can offer the right mental health support, so children thrive.
We’re a vital lifeline – but we can’t do it without you.
